GLENN: Let me go to Basil Marceaux.

STU: Dotcom.

GLENN: Basil Marceaux. Basil, how are you sir?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Fine, Glenn. I watch you all the time on your news broadcast on FOX.

(APPLAUSE.)

GLENN: Down, boys.

BASIL MARCEAUX: I watched you last night. You're trying to separate the difference between republic and democracy there. That was pretty good, except you missed one thing.

PAT: What did he miss?

BASIL MARCEAUX: We take an oath to republic our democracy. So, we have to (inaudible) so, we have to kick them out and we actually say the (inaudible.)

PAT: Good point.

GLENN: Basil, let me ask you. There are a lot of people and I think there are some within arm's length currently that would question whether or not you're a serious candidate.

PAT: We're so serious about Basil, we believe that let's just get this one out of the way, first of all.

GLENN: Boys.

PAT: Shouldn't we?

STU: Sure, yeah.

PAT: Because I think there's some concern I don't think you can tell us, can you, Basil, that -- hasn't it been suggested that maybe you shouldn't run for President already? Has it been suggested?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Well, they want me to run for governor in California. I have a guy in West Virginia that wants to give me all his property so I can run for Virginia in West Virginia because up there all you have to do is own property to vote.

PAT: There's a ground swell. A grass roots ground swell.

BASIL MARCEAUX: There's a website out there that says Marceaux and Palin in 2012.

PAT: That's what I suggested. So, I guess we've got to get this out of the way first. Now, if elected governor of Tennessee, I mean, will you serve for, like, a year and then start running for President of the United States?

STU: Is this just a spring board for your national aspirations?

BASIL MARCEAUX: It takes a lot of signatures to become a candidate for President. If I get enough support from everyone out there to get me signatures, I'll give it a shot because I don't think anyone else is going to have guts to fix the country the way I want to fix it, where we all say a pledge to the republic and we actually mean it and we fly the real Betsy Ross flag.

STU: The gold fringe one.

BASIL MARCEAUX: I think it was Roosevelt who said you cannot desecrate our quarries. If we desecrate our quarries, then I say we might as well shoot the eagle.

STU: Yeah. That's a really good point.

PAT: It's a lot like Davy Crockett said when he said the declare naked quote.

GLENN: Basil?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Yes.

GLENN: You wear a badge around your neck. Were you a police officer or a sheriff -- what is that badge that you wear around your neck?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Okay. In fact, I'm the only one in the United States who wears it. Several years ago, as a matter of fact, I started my year, the same year you started your radio show, 2001, when a law enforcement officer put a gun to my face at a stop sign and pulled my friends out of the car and kicked the crap out of him. He was a Navy Seal like Rambo. I'm sure Rambo wouldn't have liked that much. So, I told the officer then that I was going to look for a law that allowed a marine to arrest anyone who breaks the Constitution. After three years and six months, I found Federal Law 241, the emancipation proclamation proclamation, the Civil Rights Act of 1866, and the (inaudible.)

PAT: And this is why you're going to ban all traffic stops, right?

BASIL MARCEAUX: No. Actually the traffic stops itself is the second part, where you get out of the car, what are you doing in this part of town, who have you got there, what's underneath your seat, Hey, what's that dead body in the trunk.

PAT: I hate it -- they ask me that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Basil, shouldn't we Basil, Basil

BASIL MARCEAUX: Why don't they just take a minute and go over to the judge and get a warrant and assume they have enough evidence first?

STU: Exactly.

GLENN: I agree with that, but

BASIL MARCEAUX: kick me in the head.

GLENN: I agree with that, but if he can see the dead body in your trunk, he doesn't need the search warrant, does he?

STU: He won't see if there's no traffic stop

BASIL MARCEAUX: It's the way you interpret our Constitution. The Constitution says if you you have to have look through my window or through my keyhole in my trunk bed, you have to have a warrant to go through my papers

STU: Thank you. See, Glenn?

GLENN: If somebody says what about that dead body in your trunk, isn't that something maybe if a cop knows there's a dead body, I don't want him opening up your trunk untorn, because if you have a dead body in there, it might be a good thing, but I don't want a cop to be opening up your trunk without a warrant, et cetera, and they can't do that. You're right on that, but, I mean, if he says to you while you're sitting in the car, what's up with the dead body in your trunk and there is a dead body in the trunk

BASIL MARCEAUX: Well, I just have to say to him I would have to say to him, you can't look through my keyhole or my window

STU: Yep. I agree with you on that.

GLENN: Bingo.

PAT: It's like Melissa Ethridge says, come through my window.

Glenn: Where does the badge come in?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Back to the badge. I found the emancipation proclamation I'm kind of tired right now emancipation proclamation that says the United States government and the military and the Navy to maintain and recognize such person to keep people free from slavery and no act should stop them. And we all know if I'm 4th Recon marine, the best soldier in the world, everybody knows I maintain for life and my oath is for life to protect and defend, but I have no power. I should be able to arrest people who break the Constitution. This was my oath. So, I went looking for the law to see if a marine can arrest Constitutional violators and I came upon (inaudible) 39th Congress (Inaudible) Page 38, 41, and 42. That's the same law that gave African Americans four eighths of a mule.

GLENN: So, you made the badge. What does the badge say?

BASIL MARCEAUX: It says okay. On the third prong it says if you're an Army or Navy civilian, you are a great man. You're immune from all crimes, including murder. You're above civil law. You're protected by the military. You can go into any court in the land and say, Hey, Judge, you're under arrest for breaking the Constitution and when I rule, there is no appeal for you and you should be scared of me because if you if you don't get off the Bench when I tell you, I have to treat you like a bank robber. That's why we printed it in our

PAT: That seems to be a lot of power, Basil

STU: Yeah, it is.

BASIL MARCEAUX: But (inaudible) it says that there is when this draw is apprehended by the citizens of the future, the outcry will be just as powerful as it was when the now dominant party invaded our country and ordered republic restored in the future by a great man going to the ballot box

STU: This goes along with Basil's policies.

PAT: Very small writing.

STU: And he will bring larger badges to Tennessee, if you just elect Basil Marceaux.

Glenn: Good luck today.

BASIL MARCEAUX: Thank you.

Critical Race Theory: A special brand of evil

wal_172619/Pixabay

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."
